    Compare the pictures carefully. Note that the stars have moved and glowing symbols of the magic schools have appeared. That's right! This one has an animated UV map and an animated glow shader, thanks to a lot of head banging trying to figure out the Target Variable numbers for the BSLightingShaderFloatController. (The NifSkope help is all wrong on that one.) It was all done in NifSkope, and quite easy once I knew how to point the controller to the right variable.

    Darned overlapping UVs fooled me, so the ward text around the base of the writing stand came out upside down. Not that many people would be able to tell.

    I didn't have to give up the scrimshaw for the noble version after all. I just needed to ditch the scenery part that was making the whole handle muddy. I got my new Celtic horsie knot finished, and it looks fine on the end cap. By some bizarre accident while making the normal map for the new symbol, the surface of the castle on the sleeve came out with sort of a rough texture that looks like the silversmith was mimicking stonework. I like it! I shouldn't have to redo this one again, so I don't have to worry about having the same accident, whatever it was.

    Obviously this noble is seriously into horses. I got some additional mileage out of the work I put into the Celtic horsie by turning him into a carving, and I'm rather pleased with how well it worked. Next up, the Deskset of the Archmage and the Deskset of the Dark Brotherhood. Might do one for alchemists and one for a priest of the Nine Divines, as well. (I wonder what fizzy ink would look like, and how to pull it off? Hmmm. )

    After taking another look at my main inspiration pic, it suddenly occurred to me that perhaps I should try ivory rather than wood for the handle, since ivory can be scrimshawed. Here is my first try. Unfortunately the scrimshaw loses a LOT of crispness when resized to fit the handle. Is it still recognizable as being scrimshaw? The scrimshaw on the left will probably need to shrink a touch more and move up away from the sleeve a little. I will probably replace the one on the right entirely, as it seems too dark and does not fill enough vertical space. Note: credit to Victoria, from whose gallery I obtained the first two images for scrimshaw-izing!
